Drawing - Growing artists

We learnt all about the artist Max Ernst and created our own 'frottage' pieces of art using texture rubbings to create nature inspired artwork.

We also created our own botanical drawings from observations, applying techniques to add tone and form to shapes before exploring scale and composition to create abstract drawings of flowers inspired by Gillian O'Keeffe and Maud Purdy.
